AWD Digital is now ISO 27001 certified

16 November 2023

We are now ISO 27001 Certified!

We are excited to announce we have recently been certified to ISO 27001.

The world’s leading standard for information security management systems (ISMS), the ISO 27001 contains a set of high-level standards for handling information securely.

Why Did We Get ISO 27001 Certified?

As a digital agency, we recognise the primacy of information security for our business and, most importantly, for our clients. However, acknowledging the significance of information security and implementing well-intentioned practices alone was not sufficient for us. Our goal was to excel beyond expectations by protecting our internal information as well as the information entrusted to us by our clients.
As a result, we have aligned ourselves with ISO 27001, the global standard for information security. By adopting best practices, we aimed to solidify our commitment to excellence and provide our clients with the utmost confidence in their data security.

The Process

To obtain ISO 27001 certification, AWD Digital underwent a thorough audit process, aiming to demonstrate that its Information Security Management System (ISMS) fulfills the standard’s requirements. The audit, conducted by a JAS-ANZ Accredited Body, encompassed all facets of AWD Digital’s information security, ranging from policies and procedures to the technical controls employed for data protection.

By implementing these measures, we strengthened our information security framework, aligning it with the strict requirements set forth by ISO 27001.
This commitment to excellence underscores our dedication to protecting our clients’ data and maintaining the highest information security standards.

Throughout our journey, we implemented several crucial measures, including:

1. Consolidation of Data Storage Systems
3. Enhanced Onboarding and Offboarding Practices
4. Mobile Device Management across Our Laptop Fleet
5. Information Security Training for All Staff
6. Upgraded Cybersecurity Measures

What This Certification Means for Our Clients?

By achieving this certification, we demonstrate our commitment to information security, compliance, and regulatory compliance. Using advanced systems and processes that prioritise the utmost security and confidentiality of all information we handle, track, and share holds significant implications for our clients.

By ensuring data integrity and associated processes, we ensure that our clients can place complete trust in our services. Additionally, we have fostered a culture of information security among our team members by cultivating a deep awareness of its importance.

Our ISO 27001 certification is a testament to our commitment to information security, compliance, and regulation, as well as to our proactive and systematic approach to secure information management. With these practices in place, we prioritise our clients’ data security, ensuring confidentiality, integrity, and availability at all times.

Commitment to information security as an ongoing journey

Information security is constantly evolving, and we are in the best position to stay up-to-date on these developments because of our certification and our internal team of ISO 27001 auditors. Auditing our processes at least every year will help us maintain and improve our information security so our clients can always trust our services.
